Okinawa Uechi-Ryu Karate-Do Association Tokyo Branch has received many purchase orders of Uechi-Ryu founder, Kanbun Uechi's biography from Karate friends all over the world since English version of the book was published on March this year. Fortunately the books have kept receiving a favorable reputation, now only small number of copies left in our stock. Requested by many people, we may have to discuss about reprinting of the books and also we have to consider how to reduce handling work and cost. Then we would like to ask anyone who would like to purchase the books to place purchase order not by each individual but by a group such as organization and dojo in lump sum (Minimum order 20 copies). Further enquirers and purchase reservations from group representatives through our website would be appreciated.
Also we would appreciate it if you would understand that we may not be able to reprint depending on the number of reservations from you.

*There are still some stocks in Shureido shop and History shop in Shurijo Castle Park in Okinawa.
** Bronze stature of Kanbun Uechi will be put up at his birthplace in Yaedake (where was introduced in the biography as well) in this fall. It will be the first bronze stature as Karate-ka in Okinawa. It will be worth for you to visit there.

@The emblem is really a composite of two symbols, one representing the old Okinawa and one the new.The off-center cicle-within-a-circle is the official prefectural symbol of Okinawa;the outer red ring represents the ocean,the inner white ring peace,and the central red sphere means debelopment or progress.This symbol of


modern Okinawa is enclosed within a symbol of the ancient Ryukyuan Kingdome consisting of three yellow waves that circle a white region.The Okinawan emblem combines symbols to represent the continuity of ancient Ryukyuan values within modern-day Okinawa,and the concentric circles motif symbolizes,variously,the eternity of Heaven and Earth,self-completion, equality, and peace.This whirling vision of justice and peace,so central to the Uechi-Ryu Okikukai philosophy,is also the confident expression of the belief that the ancient Ryukyuan ethos continues and will continue to enliven Okinawan life.
